We have been waiting to see Chael Sonnen vs Wanderlei Silva finally settle their feud in the octagon. We are one step closer to that happening as UFC President Dana White announced on Fox Sports Live in front of Sonnen telling him that him and Silva will be the coaches on the upcoming The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3.
“I told everybody we wouldn’t release it until sometime late November. I guess we’ll do it here. The coaches of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil are Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen,” White announced.
“That one’s going to piss off a lot of people. It’s happening. Then those two will fight. You two will coach The Ultimate Fighter, you will have a ton of security down there with you, and it should be a fun season.”
“You two will coach The Ultimate Fighter. You will have a ton of security down there with you, and it should be a fun season,” White said to Sonnen.
The feud between Silva and Sonnen has gone on for well more than a year now as Sonnen has made disparaging remarks about Brazilian fighters including Silva. “The Axe Murderer” came back by making crude remarks on social media and in various You Tube videos.
The feud reached a boiling point when Sonnen was at the Mr.Olympia convention in Las Vegas a few weeks doing an autograph signing when Silva approached Silva wanting a fight and they both had to be separated.
The filming of season will be starting in the next couple of months. White didn’t announce when the season will air on television and when Silva and Sonnen would fight, which presumable will happen sometime in 2014.
